in the united states. [laughter] besides those two. it is a bizarre and unfortunate fact i think. but those are help interesting facts about the supreme court. but, frankly, i don't think they're very important. here's an important fact about the supreme court. there are five republicans and four democrats. i will speak for somewhat longer, but this is basically all you need to know. [laughter] if there's a take away here, i've gotten to the point early. there are five republicans and four democrats, and that really tells you much of what you need to know. and it is true that the justices wear robes because they're supposed to look all alike, and this was, you know, supposed to give the perception that they're all pretty much the same. but just as on the other side of first street, the united states congress is deeply divided, according to party, so was the united states supreme court. and this is a moment of real partisan division at the supreme court. and that is exemplified in case after case. why this moment is so important i think, you need to go back in history of the supreme court to

of the united states in the arab world, he will -- whoever will win will have to face a totally different wornd world. that policy is different today. you have to face government that were elected and are in power and they don't have to have the same interests. he have to convince them and collaborate and partner with them on shaping their realities closest we can to our views. i'm sorry to say that. president obama will come with his achievements, killing bin laden, hammering al qaeda, actually trying to endorse palestinian and israeli peace process that he couldn't do because of the factors of what's going on on the ground and many other things. what romney will come with is a bunch of insults towards these countries that alienate them before he's in office. even with china. how can he talk to the number two economy in the world, the number one holder of u.s. debt and the country giving loans to emerging markets more than the world bank. how can he talk to them before you're in office in those terms? how do you think they will do? >> a really good point. in the mideast we're dealing with demo

to be running for president of the united states, there are two things you don't do in debates. one, you don't run over a female moderator. stylistically you don't. it's very dangerous. jim lehrer, fine. you can get out a knife and have a knife fight with jim lehrer. but you don't do that with a female moderator. it's problematic. secondly, you don't run over the president of the united states. whether that president's a republican or whether that president is a democrat. there are independent voters who believe that a president should be treated with deference because he is the commander in chief. >> and you do it carefully. >> more in sadness than in anger. >> with all due respect. with all due respect. >> and the mitt romney that we saw yesterday was the mitt romney who was very successful in cutting off newt gingrich and rick perry and herman cain when the stakes were far lower, and it took him about 20 minutes to figure out that he just couldn't be that much of a bulldozer. >> yeah. well, when he said that thing to the president at one point, "you'll get your turn." that was an incredib

, that is when we had with the statement. this is a person who is top intelligence officer in the united states government. i have the statement right here. what i believe it does it attempts to give the administration some cover for their initial comments and then concludes what we saw in libya wasn't terrorism. there is a problem here. when you read the statement is what you see is the administration assessments of libya went way beyond what is in the document specifically the statements of susan rice that spun the story that was hijacked by extremists and then launched an assault. we're going to look back on the period and original reporting as really changing the dialogue publicly about this attack. we reported a day after the assault based on an interview with the head of the house intelligence committee in was premeditated commando style attack. then with my colleagues pamela brown, on the 17th after the ambassador wrote his comments, we reported there was no demonstration at consulate when the attack happened. then my colleague bret baier was the first to report that a guantanamo detaine

no involvement with the release. paul ryan speaking about a moral tipping point in united states, six months before romney's 47% remark. >> before too long we could become a society we were never, ever intended to be. we could become a society where the net majority of americans are takers, not makers. today 70% of americans get more benefit from the federal government in dollar value than they pay back in taxes. you could argue that we're already past that tipping point. the good news is, survey after survey, poll after poll, still shows that we are a center right 70/0 country. 70% of americans want the american dream. they believe the american idea. only 30%en watt their welfare state. what that tells us is at least half of those people currently in that category are there not of their wish or their will. >> ryan's comment were part of the keynote address at a gala dinner hosted by the american spectator. that was in november 201, ten months ago, well before he was considered to be a vice presidential running mate. >>> a pennsylvania judge will let voters go to the polls without photo i.d.

-over-year gain in six years. august marked the sixth consecutive month home prices rose in the united states. let's go to cnbc's jeff cutmore, live in london. >> good morning. you know how the saying goes, if there's a wealth effect in the housing market you get the trickle down. that's what we're talking about in this segment. we've seen this number coming out of core logic. they are suggesting a sharp rebound in home prices. it looks good on paper but let's not forget there's still more than one in five american home owners under water with negative equity. what it means downstream, though, recovery in the housing market we're seeing the rental market coming off steam, slowing takeup in the rental space. baer that in mind while mortgages are still affordable. a lot of people thinking about home ownership over rental. one more to throw in here on the feel-good factor, beer sales are up. we have turned around three years of decleans. it seems americans are going out and buying beer and drunking beer. particularly from those specialty brewers. i had a look at the wine numbers just to see if they w

for president of the united states he went on vacation in europe and daniel schorr, "cbs evening news." foreign correspondent reported that barry goldwater's planned trip to europe was really a clandestine effort to meet up with neo-nazi elements in hitler's stomping ground in order to coordinate the fall campaign. goldwater actually sued and won which is one of the very few times we ever get liabled or slandered by the press and get punishment for it. since 1987 the media research center has been documenting these attacks and providing fodder for people like me and others to sort of turn the tables on them. the more, the trend has always been more you admire a leader, conservative leader like goldwater or reagan or clarence thomas or jesse helms or rush limbaugh the entire congressional class of 1994 or the tea party movement most of the united states, western civilization, basically anything that is on the side of truth, justice and the american way we get demonized for it and treated as if we're some sort of other worldly evil creatures. so tonight we give you some snippets down memory rain

, and competitiveness. how do you create within the united states the most competitive environment in the world. i think that alludes to this idea that companies, world wide american companies, are in a position to pursue 95% of the world consumers who are outside the united states. there is a recognition that the u.s. tax code should be moving to put them on a platform to do that, to compete effectively. an area of common ground is in recognition of that. number one, you need more revenue. if the democrats are open to how that revenue comes about, great. my view has always been, look, if you can get the money that satisfies these obligations, that is the area of common ground. let's move forward on that. and it is not just party dogma. this level of dissatisfaction, this notion that we have literally an army of people in the united states that have to be hired in order to comply with our own tax code, we have 1.2 million people who are on the compliance aside. we have 1.4 people roughly that who are unemployed -- who are unemployed currently. the need for simplicity is the common ground on which we mus
